DSA is funded by our membership — not corporate foundations or private companies. This ensures that DSA members are in full democratic and political control of our organization. Through national dues and local contributions, DSA members self-fund our own tools for liberation. No one is turned away for lack of funds. Contact us for more information.
Becoming a DSA Member
To become a DSA member you must pay dues to our national organization. Annual dues are an option, but we encourage everyone who is financially able to become a national monthly sustaining member.

Sustaining our local chapter
Local contributions are not mandatory but we do need them to keep the lights on. They are used for renting rooms, printing materials, logistical needs, and as of now, pay our two new part-time staff members to help run our campaigns and communications. One-time donations are always appreciated, but regular monthly contributions allow us to build a more stable and sustainable organization. Your contributions help make sure that our organization is accountable to its membership alone.
